Church Overview

The red sandstone church was originally built in 1900 as a consequence of the St Mary’s United Free Church expansion into Linthouse in the late 1890s. The architect was James Miller, designer of St Enoch’s, and is one of the few church buildings designed by him which is still in use.

The façade is a striking blend of classical with Arts & Crafts. A broad gable is flanked by matching square towers topped with colonnaded cupolas. The halls were added in 1953 by John S Boyd. Embroidered church falls and table frontals from 1900-1926 commissioned by the first Minister and executed by Miss Webster, a member of the congregation.
